Biography

Originally from Southern California (San Diego and Orange County), Dr. Briggs joined the ASU Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry (now the School of Molecular Sciences) in 2004, teaching large-enrollment General Chemistry lectures and Physical Chemistry lab courses.  Shortly thereafter, he was charged with management of the General Chemistry and Teaching Assistant Programs, which he continues to manage today.  In this capacity, Dr. Briggs has overseen the creation of new active learning formats, innovative classroom designs, and fundamental changes to instructional staffing that have resulted in increased student success and retention.  He has been nominated for multiple teaching awards and continues to enjoy teaching General Chemistry in addition to his administrative roles.
